That is correct sir. I work on the Navy birds here in GTMO. We have the only planes stationed here permanently. Some days I wonder about my choice of profession but for the most part it is an easy plane to maintain. The only Air Force planes I know of now are either embassy or testbed platforms. I know quite few of the guys who maintain them all. It is a rather small community of people who deal with these planes.

Back on topic, if by some chance things don't go as planned for the JVC you will be the first person I contact. I've seen them pop up from time to time in different places so don't give up hope.

Maybe a bit sickening but I tuned the display with resistors just until I got the best matching colour with the cocobolo....

Considering you're in GTMO, you DESERVE the boombox more than I do! Enjoy it, and the mods.....

As for the C-12, we had two outfitted with "special sensors" for data collection. I doubt if you'd recognize the tail numbers (we used to change them--and repaint the planes--often)....

P.S. my "operative term" is RETIRED, these days. I go my Ken. I'll keep an eye out for you in the Forums.....

Thanks Fran,

The idea is to give it a "2-box-operation" look but practically on one board.
The player part will be ebony and copper with a Slim-Look.

All in all a PiTbull look ....but in the end its younger brother.....since there can only be one (to quote Highlander)

Now I know why it is useless to build these things for a living....too many hours when you are passionate....even if it outperforms a lot of high-end transports....

As far as I know, those planes do not exist. My boss has seen all the Navy and AF C-12's out there. He used to be in the rep at the facility that did all the 5 year depot level inspection work. There are some interesting configurations scattered around.

GTMO is not as bad as people make it out to be. I've been here a little over 2 years and will sign another 3 year contract a the end of this year. It's all in what you make it.

I'll be sure to post pics of all my mods on here about this project. I can't wait to get started.

Sorry, this will hopefully be my last question on connecting the shiga to the dac.
If I buy a 75 ohm RG-59U cable terminated with BNC connectors, cut in half solder 1/2 to the inputs of the dac
solder other 1/2 to the resistor network (and grnd) of the shiga
Then I have to use a female to female connector to connect the two BNC's
male ends.
Is there a better way or is this it?
Thanks,
Paul

Yes that work fine. You could also fit a bnc socket to both the shiga and dac and then not have to cut the cable. You can buy bnc terminations and there's loads of videos on youtube on how to do it. That way you would only need some 75r coax.

Hopefully next week sometime I will have an ez-31 in hand. It should leave Canada today or tomorrow headed for Florida for pick up next week.

Can someone point me in the direction to the post about the dimensions for the screw on clamp? I remember seeing it but can't seem to find exactly what I am looking for. I have a lathe and the ability to turn my own just need the dimensions. Thanks.
